Can't believe this wasn't posted yet.


Paul Rudd will shrink down a few sizes when he suits up for Ant-Man, a new Marvel superhero movie set to hit theaters in July 2015.

Rudd will portray Ant-Man and his alter-ego Henry Pym, a scientist who discovers a formula that allows him to shrink down to the size of an ant, the BBC reports. For those curious about what such a pint-sized hero can achieve, know this: in his first-ever comic appearance, Ant-Man took down several Soviet agents trying to steal his shrinking serum – and triumphed with the help of, yes, an army of ants.

I understand him to be an important part of A3.

In the comics he created Ultron. They're tweaking Ultron's background though. IIRC they're going to branch out a new avengers team after A3.

This fucking sucks.

After the abrupt May 23 exit of Edgar Wright, the geek-favorite filmmaker behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, from Marvel Studios' long-gestating Ant-Man movie, the studio has insisted the Paul Rudd film will be finished in time to make its July 17, 2015, release date.

But while a source close to the studio says a search for a new director is underway, some observers believe Marvel president Kevin Feige will have a hard time pulling together the risky film in such a short time frame.

The challenges are clear in finding a director who can pick up a project infused with Wright's vision for years. In addition, sources say the film's key crew -- its heads of departments -- departed when it became clear

production would not begin as scheduled July 28. Rudd's reps say he's still in, and a source close to the production says all key crew positions will be filled shortly.

Wright, 40, is an irreverent British filmmaker, and sources say Marvel had been unhappy with his take on Ant-Man for weeks. Originally set to begin shooting June 2, the production had been put on hiatus while Feige ordered revisions of the script that was co-written by Wright and Joe Cornish. According to sources, Wright had been willing to make revisions earlier in the process. But the new rewrites took place without Wright's input, and when he received Marvel's new version early during the week of May 19, he walked, prompting a joint statement announcing his exit "due to differences in their visions of the film."

The move came as a shock because Wright had been working on the project -- about a scientist who can shrink to the size of an ant -- since 2006. Feige told MTV in 2013 that Wright's vision "is the only reason we're making the movie." But Marvel and Wright were different entities when they began their relationship. Marvel was an upstart, independent and feisty as it began building the Marvel Studios brand with the first two Iron Man films and Captain America: The First Avenger.

Now owned by Disney, Marvel has established itself as a reliable maker of hits. Feige essentially is the showrunner on $150 million episodes in a Marvel universe that expands in phases. The company "Marvel-izes" its projects, as a source with ties to the company puts it. That sometimes leads to clashes with filmmakers who have strong points of view, as Kenneth Branagh found during the making of Thor. He did not return for the sequel, nor did Joe Johnston for Captain America. Patty Jenkins, who directed the 2003 Charlize Theron hit Monster, was hired for Thor 2 then fired. Edward Norton clashed with Marvel during post on The Incredible Hulk and was replaced by Mark Ruffalo for the character's return in The Avengers. Terrence Howard similarly was replaced by Don Cheadle in the Iron Man sequels. And on May 24, Drew Goddard was replaced as showrunner by Steven S. DeKnight on Marvel's upcoming Netflix series Daredevil (though Goddard is working on Sony's Marvel movie Sinister Six).

"Kevin Feige [and his top lieutenants] run Marvel with a singularity of vision, but when you take a true auteur and throw him into the mix, this is what you get," says a source. "They don't want you to speak up too much or have too much vision. People who have never worked there don't understand how they operate, but if you trust them, they have an amazing track record."

Ant-Man's tone might have been too quirky for the Marvel universe. Insiders say Marvel feels it already might have gone outside its comfort zone with August's Guardians of the Galaxy, a space adventure heavy on odd humor and featuring a talking raccoon. In 2011, Sony's similarly comic The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen failed to launch the franchise for which the studio hoped.

Wright declined comment, but he tweeted, then deleted, the word "selfie," followed by a sad-faced Buster Keaton holding a Cornetto ice cream cone (Wright's trio of genre movies is known as the Cornetto trilogy). Keaton famously lost his independence after his ambitious 1926 film The General didn't perform well. He took a job at MGM, which he later called the worst decision of his life. Avengers director Joss Whedon also tweeted a photo of himself appearing dejected and seeming to salute Wright with a Cornetto.

Wright's first studio experience also was fraught. He directed 2010's acclaimed Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which bombed for Universal, grossing $31.5 million domestically. Now his second studio film has been taken away. James Gunn, director of Guardians, might have said it best. He wrote on Facebook that Wright and Marvel "just don't have personalities that mesh in a comfortable way."

Yep. Apparently Marvel is running into some bumps with these projects.

Must be hard to walk away from something after 7 years.

BERT 05-30-2014 11:13 AM

I'm sure they'll find somebody. He wasn't the only director out there that can do this

Scott Mc 05-30-2014 11:45 AM

Watch them get Michael Bay lol.

idrivea4banger 05-30-2014 12:34 PM

Well this movie will flop.

zachary 06-02-2014 12:02 PM

They have to run into bumps at some point in the road. They will plug someone in and move right along i think. Look at what Marvel has done so far, do not think they are in trouble at all

talismans 06-02-2014 12:35 PM

Losing the Director after an 8 year pre-production process is more than a "bump."

talismans 07-23-2014 07:45 PM

I must not have been paying attention, because I had no idea Michael Douglas was going to be the main character. That's awesome.

While Marvel Studios still has Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron still to be released before they are done with Phase Two, it won't be long until they are ready to kick off Phase Three with Ant-Man. While some drama exploded a few months ago when writer/director Edgar Wright and the studio went separate ways over creative differences, the project is now back on track and set to begin filming soon. Before that happens, however, the filmmakers and stars behind the movie will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con for the huge Marvel panel, and to celebrate the event we have the brand new poster that you see above.

We've had a good idea of what the Ant-Man costume would look like ever since San Diego Comic-Con 2012 when Edgar Wright revealed some test footage to the audience in Hall H, but now Entertainment Weekly has shown off the official artwork that you see above. Drawn by Andy Park, an artist who works as part of Marvel’s visual development department, the piece is not only an artistic representation of the Ant-Man costume and his shrinking powers, but even features cool illustrations of both Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, the movie's stars.

Based on a script written by Anchorman's Adam McKay and directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man brings to life two different versions of the classic titular comic book character. Michael Douglas stars as Dr. Hank Pym, a scientist and discoverer of Pym Particles - the substance that let's him shrink down to the size of an insect. Paul Rudd, meanwhile, starts as Scott Lang, a thief who winds up stealing the Ant-Man costume so that he can try and help his dying daughter. While we don't know who they will be playing, also set to be featured in the movie are Patrick Wilson, Corey Stoll, Evageline Lilly, Matt Gerald and Michael Pena.

Now that Marvel Studios has found a new director to make the movie, Ant-Man is getting ready to roll into production next month, and will be one of the projects that Marvel Studios brings onto the stage in Hall H - but far from the only one. In addition to both Peyton Reed's movie and Joss Whedon's massive The Avengers: Age of Ultron, there has also been rumors that Marvel is getting set to announce titles for all of the untitled projects that have been announced but remain total mysteries character/plot-wise. No matter what, we expect a lot of huge Marvel news to emerge this week, so be sure to stay tuned.

What do you think of the Ant-Man costume design? Do you think it looks cool, or did you expect it to look different? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
